Introducing EVGA Pro SLI Bridges

EVGA rolled out a trio of custom-design NVIDIA SLI bridge cables, one each for 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way SLI setups. Its design involves an ingot-shaped top, with three sides covered with brushed aluminum, and a centerpiece with a white glowing EVGA logo, next to an NVIDIA SLI one. The EVGA logo illuminates when the bridge is plugged in to GeForce GTX 700 series (or later) graphics cards. The 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way bridges are available on EVGA store, priced at $29.99, each.

Features:
  • Several models that are compatible with 2-Way, 3-Way or 4-Way SLI.
  • EVGA logo illuminates on GeForce GTX 700 series and later.
  • Compatible with all SLI enabled graphics cards.
  • Looks awesome!

Would nicely match a pair of GTX Titans (or any other cards using that cooler design).
But come on, that can't cost more than $2 to build chargning $30 is ridiculous. $5 maybe??

Ok, I'm as much into the looks of my PC as lot of people are.

But no way am I paying $30 for multi-card bridges. That's just stupid.

EVGA has gone the H-D (Harley Davidson) route: save your broken company by means of PR-pills all day all time and turn your customers into willing ***holes.... by making them believe they really really have to be sooo special :(

They should sell at least a dozen of these at $30, the rest after they hit the bargain bin for $5.99...

This is witchcraft! How does the bridge know the difference between a 770 and a 680?

Instead of charging $9.99 for a $9 profit, why not charge $29.99 for a $29 profit? After all, people who are willing to buy in the first place are ready to spend any amount of money to bling up.

most likely there has been a power pin added to the 7 series that isn't on the 6 series to illuminate the LED.

I've use SLI since the 7 series, I wouldn't say it has been totally problem free, but I've only really had one major trouble with it. So I wouldn't say it has been nothing but trouble.

Maybe the voltage used between the cards is higher on the GTX700 cards, and the LEDs won't work on previous cards that use a lower voltage?

Yeeaah...I'd buy that..

....seriously people? If you knew how overpriced 99% of the stuff we buy is(every...almost every company is in business to make a profit)...this thing blends right in. Will get one just because...and done right.. it could look killer. I think I've spent more on braided cables....

I like how they look, but if they were a bit cheaper ($19.99) then I'd get it, I dislike the floppy style dual card SLi connectors.

Best investment I ever did with my 460s. Has aged much better than any past build.

But this product...just stupid.

The difference is they offer a choice. You want an aesthetic upgrade? Buy the aluminum bridge. Want the standard no frills version? Get the standard black ribbon.

There is no claim to performance increases. They acknowledge its for looks, it's very similar to buying a backplate.
